Steve Marohl knew last year his single-season points record was bound to fall - and that someone with the last name Thompson was going to do it. And he's OK with that - and enjoying watching them play just like everyone else. As a lacrosse fan and someone still involved in the game, he's happy to see the impact brothers Lyle and Miles, and cousin Ty, are having on the sport he loves. "These guys are idolized by the younger kids; I see it with the kids I coach," he said Tuesday.

When the Detroit Turbos finished in the cellar in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League last season, they never dreamed they would return to health so quickly.The league, in its wisdom, gave the Turbos not one No. 1 draft choice, but two. OK, Detroit, now that you've chosen Gary Gait, you can have his twin brother Paul, too. With the same pick; two for the price of one.Predictably, the Gaits are doing for the Turbos what they did for Syracuse. The Orangemen captured three straight NCAA championships under their leadership, and now the Turbos have gone from last to first.

GARY GAIT HAS moved on with the rest of his life, and it's time for those who lobbied for him to get the lacrosse coaching job at the University of Maryland to do the same. Ever since Sept. 25, when Maryland officials selected Dave Cottle over Gait for one of the most coveted jobs in the sport, there have been floods of letters and e-mails insinuating that this was the greatest conspiracy and coverup since Watergate. To those writers, I suggest you put on your khaki pants, Docksiders with no socks and oxford shirts, and get a life.

THE AIR GAIT MOVE came in spring 1988, and not only catapulted Syracuse midfielder Gary Gait from the back of crease to the front of the goal, but also into his unofficial role as lacrosse's top ambassador. It's been a great ride for Gait, a three-time All-American who won three national titles at Syracuse. He has been an All-World selection at the past three world championships and an All-Pro a record-setting 10 straight years in the indoor game. As an assistant coach with the Maryland women's team, he has played an integral part in the Terps' dynasty.

Syracuse University, which was 42-1 while winning the past three National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I championships, is in a strange position this season.The Orangemen, without the superstar Gait brothers, Paul and Gary, have lost two games this season, the most since 1987, when they were 9-4 in the Gaits' freshman season."Losing the Gaits is like being weaned -- a very big adjustment," said Syracuse coach Roy Simmons. "If someone told me how much the team would miss them, I wouldn't have believed him. In addition to losing the Gaits, we also lost 11 other seniors, and they represented 82 percent of our scoring.

One night in 1999, a rash of frightening sensations hit Paul Titus all at once. His left arm went numb. His left eye began twitching. He couldn't speak without slurring. Unaware what the symptoms meant, he was slow to call for help. When his ischemic stroke was finally over, he was paralyzed on his left side and for 14 years he needed a leg brace and cane just to stay upright. One morning last week, Titus smiled as he loped along on a treadmill in a makeshift gym. A high-tech, brace-like device wrapped his left ankle, monitoring his gait 200 times per second and supplying energy boosts as needed.

Sunday's meeting with No. 7 Syracuse was a bellwether game for the No. 13 Loyola women's lacrosse team. A little past midseason, this 17-10 loss to the Orange in a Big East contest at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field showed how far the Greyhounds still have to go, but it also measured how far they have come in their resurgence. In her first season as coach, Jen Adams, a former star player at Maryland and assistant with the Terps and Denver, has guided Loyola (8-4, 1-3) to victories over three ranked teams and to its first Top 20 ranking since March 2005.

He revolutionized the men's game with his stick skills and acrobatic attack moves, winning more than a dozen championships on the college, pro and international levels. In 1994, he brought that same innovation and creativity to the women's game as an assistant coach at Maryland, inspiring a style of play that fueled a record seven-year run as NCAA Division I champion.

Upsets were not on the menu during a rare staging of four stakes races on yesterday's card at Laurel Park. And for a pair of connections harboring big-time hopes, avoiding a Maryland upset was merely the next step in winter trips to Florida and Gulfstream Park. The 2-year-old Global Gait, a son of Concern trained by Anthony Dutrow, trounced six others to win the $100,000 Maryland Juvenile Championship. It was the third straight win for Global Gait, and it has Dutrow considering the Holy Bull Stakes Jan. 20 at Gulfstream.

"Don't Leave Without Me" reads a handmade sign in the cat suite, which is home to a 14-pound Tabby named Lucky. Boyd the rabbit - "gender unknown" - twiddles in his cage. But what happens when an animal adoption agency finds itself the sudden recipient of 75 horses in need of a home? "I knew it was a situation we had to deal with," says Paul Miller, the group's executive director. "Whatever it took, we had to do it."
